I've been looking at Christmas menus and lots of them have chestnut soup as part of their prix-fixe menu
Barolo in Pacifica
Roasted Italian Chestnut Soup Truffle Honey / Sherry Wine / Chives
Dry Creek Kitchen
ROASTED CHESTNUT SOUP SAUTÉED BAY SCALLOPS SPICED RUM SABAYON CRISPY CHESTNUTS
And a few others
And no ... I won't make it myself no matter how easy. I had water chestnut soup for Thanksgiving but it doesn't seem like the same thing.
Anyway, now I have a craving for chestnut soup but I'm not seeing it yet on any December memus. I'd appreciate it if anyone spots chestnut soup that they would post.
